View Full Version : So the boss man would like to get a wireless pro
So the boss man would like to get a wireless projector. This would be for demos and presentations, which generally aren't in light-controlled settings, so it would probably need to be fairly bright DLP. Of course, he also wants it to be as small as possible.
Most of the reviews I've read mention that they are a PITA to get setup, I'm assuming becuase of the nature of a ad-hoc wireless connection in general. My boss is relatively technical, but it's still hard to beat just plugging in a video cable when the pressure is on.
Anyone have first-hand experiences and if so, can you recommend a model? Thanks!

http://www.level1.com/products3.php?sklop=8&id=540515 might be a help. It is a wireless projector Server. You just hook that to the projector and run a piece of software on the tablet/laptop that will handle the wireless connection and then your screen is displayed on the projector. Good feature is that the Projector Server can also hook into a LAN point to allow you to access your network resources normally, almost becoming a Access Point in its own right. This means you can get an projector you like and still get wireless AND have access to anything you will need over the network, instead of having to store it all on the tablet in advance. Also it is 54Mbps so audio and video can be used, which I have heard is a problem for some bluetooth and 11Mbps wireless projector solutions.
I will admit that I dont have one but we are looking into them heavily after seeing them being used for a demonstration for some software. They were not the focus of the demonstration but ended up as the bit of kit we wanted!

Also checkout InFocus.
They have regular projectors and then a wireless adapter that you can use on any of the projectors.

I use the Epson PowerLite 735c. It's a normal, reasonably small and bright projector with a wireless card so you can plug it into a computer via cable or connect wirelessly via 802.11. You can also switch back and forth. We keep a computer connected to it and the network full time in the conference room but if I want to "take over" I can set it up initially and switch back and forth from my tablet to the conference room PC with the push of a button. Very happy with it. I don't like DLPs much, by the way, as they seem to turn yellows to pea green! This one isn't a DLP.
